New York Times columnist and author Frank Bruni in conversation with six-time Grammy Award winner Lady Gaga and seven-time Academy Award nominee Diane Warren, whose song "Til It Happens to You" was written and performed for the highly acclaimed documentary "The Hunting Ground," from Academy Award-nominated writer- director Kirby Dick and Academy Award nominated producer Amy Ziering. "The Hunting Ground," which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival, is a startling expose of sexual assault on U.S. campuses, institutional cover-ups and the toll on victims and their families. In her review, New York Times film critic Manohla Dargis said that the women and men shown in the documentary taking on institutional power "are getting the message out - brilliantly." Taped December 10, 2015.
